Dr. Marv Marshall. Born on March 11th, 1933, in Michigan, Marv’s journey led him to Los Angeles in his teens, where he attended Hollywood High School, laying the foundation for a life dedicated to education and community.

Marv’s fervor for education and leadership propelled him to become not only a teacher but also a high school principal. His impact on education extended beyond the conventional as he embraced a vision of transformative classroom management.

A devoted Mason in the Scottish Rite and a member of the Shriners, Marv’s commitment to community extended far beyond the school walls. However, his most enduring legacy is the groundbreaking “Raise Responsibility System” he developed. This innovative approach to classroom management became renowned worldwide, reflecting Marv’s unwavering belief in discipline without stress, punishment, or rewards.

In his influential book, “Discipline Without Stress, Punishment or Rewards,” Marv shared his wisdom with educators globally. He served as the distinguished speaker for Phi Delta Kappa, the Education Honor Society, and spoke in over 30 countries on six continents.

Authoring three books, some translated into multiple languages, Marv’s impact reached far and wide. His work, including his e-course, is generously available for free on his websites. For additional materials, you can contact his daughter, Hillary Marshall, at

Today, as we bid farewell to Dr. Marv Marshall, we remember not only a dedicated educator but a loving husband to Evelyn and a devoted father to Hillary. His legacy lives on in the hearts and minds of those he touched, and his contributions to education will continue to shape the experiences of countless students for generations to come. May he rest in peace, surrounded by the gratitude of those fortunate enough to know him.
